Dodge Charger: no-charge AWD

by David Zatz on

Dodge is adding no-charge all wheel drive on Charger SXT and R/T, using the advanced new system that disconnects the front axle when it’s not needed, increasing gas mileage to around the same level as rear-drive systems.  The promotion is to be made during the winter months, highlighting the advantages of Dodge’s AWD system in winter weather.

The axle disconnect system is used on all Chargers with all wheel drive; the front wheels are independent of the powertrain until they are needed, and the system seamlessly engages all wheel drive, shifting up to 38% of torque to the front axle.
